    Can’t fault Rafa for what he says here – in fact everyone knows the game was won first half if we took half the chances presented to us.
    What we don’t know is what was said at half time. We were noticeably sitting in from the start of the 2nd. Yedlin going off shouldn’t have changed things as dramatically as it seemed to do..
    By the end our defensive organisation seems to have gone to pot and we were hanging on a bit, as teams often do away from home if you don’t deliver the coup de grace.
    It’s not a disaster, this team is learning on the hoof.
    Got to keep pressing for the second goal!
